Table 5 Multivariate predictors of symptom improvement

From: Fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy improves cranial neuropathies in patients with skull base meningiomas: a retrospective cohort study

Predictor (Multivariate) Odds ratio 95% CI p-value
Age (per 10 years older) 0.78 0.62 – 0.98 0.03
Prior Surgery* 0.47 0.25 – 0.86 0.01
Re-irradiation 0.40 0.11 – 1.40 0.15
Midline/Bilateral location 0.53 0.25 – 1.11 0.09
  1. Symptom improvement defined as improvement of at least one symptom compared to prior to radiation therapy. Multivariate model based on backwards stepwise logistic regression.
  2. *Patients who either received adjuvant radiation or salvage radiation after prior surgery alone.
